Dear Colleagues,
It's a great pleasure to inform you that 9th edition of the ICAR Conference will be held in Siena on June 12-14, 2017.

In keeping with the tradition of past editions and based on its characterization of abstract-driven congress, the purpose of the Conference will be to present and discuss innovations and advances in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the major viral infections, resulting from the interaction among epidemiology, basic research, virology, clinical research and the needs of patient associations, reserving great visibility to young researchers and representatives of the community, not only as part of the scientific program, but also through supporting initiatives such as Scholarships for Young Investigators and Community, ICAR-CROI Awards devoted to young Italian excellences selected during the CROI 2017 Conference.

In the last few years, ICAR has grown rapidly in number of participants, abstracts from Italy and abroad, quality of submissions and it has acquired an increasing international relevance. For ICAR 2017 too, we plan to continue on this path, in collaboration with all of you.
